You can control diabetes. If you are diagnosed with Type II diabetes, one of the first things you need to do is to get a blood sugar monitor so that you can keep a record of your blood sugar levels.

Make adjustments to your diet and start getting plenty of exercise. Take supplements if they help. I’m a bit anti on prescription medication. I’ve been more successful by monitoring my carbohydrate intake, and having an exercise plan. It is possible to get back to pre-diabetic status if you are disciplined.

One of the best things you can do to control diabetes is by being aware of the Glycemic Index that is given to certain carbohydrates. Those with Type II diabetes are warned to stay away from carbohydrates. Diabetics have a difficult time breaking down the sugars and starches and absorbing them into their system. Certain carbohydrates have higher blood glucose levels which takes them longer break down. By being aware of which carbohydrates rank high in the glycemic index is just one way to monitor the glycerin, which is the amount of glucose in the blood. It is imperative for a diabetic to monitor their glycemia.

You can control diabetes if you take your prescribed medication (if you feel you must), take supplements that support balanced blood sugars, monitor your blood sugars, become aware of carbohydrates that are high in the gylcemic index and keep an eye on your glycemia, which is the concentration of glucose in the blood, and very important get regular exercise.

Do some research into the latest findings. Don’t always believe your doctor because they are generally too busy to do any research on the new alternative ways or managing diabetes, or in fact reversing the condition.
